was born. unless the texas republican senator formally renounces that citizenship, he will remain a citizen of both countries, legal experts say." ted cruz released his canadian birth certificate in response to inquiries from the "dallas morning news." today ted cruz's senate press secretary released this oddly worded statement. "to our knowledge, he never had canadian citizenship." now, when a senator's staff speak for the senator says "to our knowledge," everything that follows that is a statement that everyone in that senate office knows might have to be quickly revised, and so it has been. the "washington post" is now reporting that ted cruz will renounce his canadian citizenship. cruz said, "now the dallas morning news says that i may technically have dual citizenship. assuming that is true, then sure, i will renounce any canadian citizenship. nothing against canada, but i'm an american by birth and as a u.s. senator i believe i should be only an american because i was a u.s. citizen at birth, because i left calgary when i was 4, and have lived my entire life since then in the u.s., an

will take it down another 0.15%. we are north of the 13th largest economy in the world in texas, so you have to remain competitive. if you want people to invest more, if you allow people to keep more of their money, we know as conservatives, they will either suspended or save it and invest, which is good for the county. we overhauled our worker compensation system. we have some of the highest rates in the nation as well as in the region. we revamped our system, moving from an antiquated system, moving to a new system that will essentially safe employers, people who create jobs, 15% to 20% on their premiums every year. people always say, stop talking about social problems. i think that is nonsense. you take every social issue known to man, whether it is high incarceration rates, drug and substance abuse issues -- i think they can all be traced to one key ingredient, and that is the breakdown of the family unit. this year in oklahoma we said we would do things to promote the family, going on a campaign to express why strong families are not as good for society, they are good for the economy, a
. >> bill: he has to be from texas. where is he from? >> i think he's from florida. >> he knows something about tanning. and he says that the affordable care act tax on tanning as part of a comprehensive package to pay for all of the benefits. there is a tax on some 2.5% or something. he says well, you know, boehner should really take this to the people. boehner who we all know loves to tan. >> bill: i was going to say if anybody is upset about this, it is john boehner. >> that he should argue that it is racist against white people. >> yeah, sure. because now they're going to have to pay a little extra for that orange glow. >> bill: others who are not caucasian don't have to pay. >> they're at a big advantage. >> bill: racist tax. >> i still love how president obama at one of the us who correspondents meeting said he and john bainer have a lot of things in common. they're both people of color. >> bill: it is a color not seen on the planet. >> not naturally occurring. >> bill: john boehner is the only member be of congress to have a tanning bed in his own office, right? >> i'm sure. actual
is it being linked to a texas megachurch? >>> then a historic building that played a huge role in richard nixon's downfall is about to be destroyed. we'll tell you which one and why. >>> and before the scenes photos of the night dzhokhar tsarnaev was arrested, we'll show you them later in the show. she loves a lot of the same things you do. it's what you love about her. but your erectile dysfunction - that could be a question of blood flow. cialis tadalafil for daily use helps you be ready anytime the moment's right. you can be more confident in your ability to be ready. and the same cialis is the only daily ed tablet approved to treat ed and symptoms of bph, like needing to go frequently or urgently. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and medications, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sexual activity. do not take cialis if you take nitrates for chest pain, as this may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. do not drink alcohol in excess with cialis. side effects may include headache, upset stomach, delayed backache or muscle ache. to avoid long-term injury, see
on in north carolina and texas, this anti-women's stuff and all this, that is not the way to advertise. this is a national story. the national races are going to get tainted by what's going on in texas and north carolina in terms of the anti-abortion, anti-union, anti-everything. i think the republicans have trouble. they really do. they don't -- the sort of the cooler heads don't seem to have the vision or the willingness to prevail, and if they don't prevail, i do not think nate silver is going to be right. nate silver is usually right, but i think it's going to be tough. >> well, and -- and nate silver is usually right. people in new york think as long as he's predicting democrats are going to win. >> all right. let me just say that gayle collins writes in "the new york times" politics of a screeching halt. she writes in part this, one of the least attractive legacies of barack obama will be the way he empowered freshman senators to believe they were only one or two good speeches away from the presidency. right now the show horses of the united states senate are rand paul of kentuck
difficult situation for house republican leaders. i was in iowa with ted cruz of texas and he had the activists out there enthralled by the idea of a government shutdown. but boehner doesn't want that. he was part of the gingrich war in the '90s. they are trying to talk them away from doing a shutdown and maybe use the debt limit as a way to get concessions in the past as another battlefield. >> so we're going to go from defund to delay? >> still brinks manship but they think it's a better battle. this is a bigger story of house republican leaders that can't control their owner members. the boehners of the world, they are not he had looking the discussion. >> you know, it also seems like it's broader than just in the house because you've got republicans like ted cruz who is a potential, we know, a political contender in 2016. he's going to take part in the heritage tour and do a town hall in dallas on tuesday. you even had mitch mcconnell wobbling a little bit saying -- he wasn't saying anything and now admits that defunding won't work. on top of it, you have ceo saying that the h
. senator ted cruz of texas, steve king of iowa, 2012 presidential candidate rick santorum and yes, donald trump. i guarantee he's not running for president. let's ignore that. it's early. the 2016 race is under way. much more on the republican side than the democratic side. we'll talk about that more in saechblthd first i want to bring in msnbc's kasey hunt at the family summit in ames, iowa. we can see the crowd has yet to fill up. very early out there, probably a time zone change. tell us who is going to be there today. we gave us a few names. what are we expecting to hear from them? >> steve, you hit on the major names coming here on the 2016 hopefuls or potential 2016 hopefuls, you donald trump, rick santorum who eked out a victory over mitt romney in 2012. but in some ways what's notable are the names that aren't yet coming out here. there was a long list of republicans who were invited but who are not actually speaking this year. rick perry, governor of texas, bobby jindal, governor of louisiana, senator marco rubio from florida. there are banner names who are likely to pop up on th
foundation defund obama care event in texas, senator ted cruz tried to rally conservatives. >> what happens next is president obama and harry reid are going to scream and yell those mean, nasty republicans are threatening to shut down the federal government. what has to happen after that is we've got to do something that conservatives haven't done in a long time. we've got to stand up and win the argument. why is it that every reporter in the media and a significant percentage of republicans assume with an impasse that president obama will never, ever, ever give up his principals so republicans have to give up theirs. if you have an impasse, you want to know one side or the other has to blink. how do we win this fight? don't blink! >> by the way, cruz was heckled at that event by people saying they wanted health care as well, but there were more supporters, as he said, than there were hecklers. earlier, though, former u.s. senator jim demint and president of the heritage foundation said any congressional republicans who oppose their effort should be replaced. the debate over how to defeat t
, the day the supreme court turned and said that section 4 was unconstitutional, that day texas changed the laws and the attorney general says we're going in to texas. we should say we join hagan. we want you, mr. holder, to go into north carolina. jerry writes why haven't you mentioned anything about the three blacks that beat a 13-year-old on a school bus? just wondering. well, thanks for the question, jerry. what jerry is asking about is this scene. three teenagers beat up a sixth grader on the bus last month. the boy was kicked and stomped about 23 times, suffered two black eyes, bruising, and a broken hand. these three teens were arrested and appeared in court today. now i've heard had some tweets on this, and i heard some folks at fox saying why hasn't sharpton gone down there and marched? because this young man was viciously beaten, it was wrong, but the assailants were arrested. the reason i went to sanford, florida, was they did not arrest george zimmerman. the reason i went to geena, louisiana, they didn't arrest the people. you fight an injustice when the system doesn't work.
park. it is now 20% contained. >>> health officials in texas say at least 21 cases of measles have been linked to a megachurch in newark, which is now hosting vaccination clinics. now back to "hardball." >>> i can no more disown him than i can disown the black community. i can no more disown him than i can disown my white grandmother, a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed her by on the street. and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe. >> what a statement by our president. welcome back to "hardball." then candidate barack obama facing questions back then with his relationship with the reverend jeremiah wright. made a speech in philadelphia, addressing race in this country. it's frequently cited as a turning point in his campaign. it's certainly a turning point historically. race is a topic that events have often driven the first african-american to speak about publicly, a
. nelson cruz of the texas rangers. jhonny peralta of the detroit tigers, it will be very interesting to see if they get a bigger salary next year than they do this year. >> you know, in fact, the quiet, all-burning question about pete rose who played for philly for a while. he's obviously a cincinnati guy. but the old question, how do you balance out great performance against breaking the rules. where do the fans stand on that one, mark? >> well, listen, i think there are fans quite upset with alex rodriguez and this steroid era. but i go back to my previous point. i think baseball profited. home runs were up. runs per game were up. baseball somewhere in '98, books were written. the sport was rejuvenated. i think there was time where baseball fans looked at the record books and cherished those records. unfortunately, the steroid era obliterated that record book. i think more often than not a lot of people look at peds and say to themselves you know what? it's a sign of the times. there's too much money to be made. if i'm an athlete at that point in time, i might look for an advantage
open which is very important. >> good friend of senator harken there of course. the texas senator ted cruz, this was his second trip to iowa in a month. he's scheduled to return again in the fall. he's going to be speaking at the iowa republican party's fall fund-raising dinner. is he tipping his hat to real political ambitions or just sort of raising his name recognition and bringing in more dollars? >> it's probably both. as i mentioned for joe biden, getting your na inting your nam spotlight, ted cruz has been doing that and more. he's going to go to new hampshire. he is all over the place. but i will repeat, again, it is very, very early. at this point in the 2008 cycle. august of 2005, hillary clinton was the clear front-runner. you had george al len was the co-front-runner on the republican side. so it is very early with still more than three years to go, peter. >> i want to get a sense, do you think it's very early with -- just kidding. let me ask you about -- acknowledging iing it's early, with me here. he made some headlines speaking out basically, you know, sort of attacking
, president george w. bush had made 50 visits to his texas ranch totalling all or part of 323 days. knoller said that he always puts the word "vacation" in quotes because as he said u.s. presidents don't really get to take a vacation. the job comes with them 24/7. well, i'm hoping president obama plays lots of golf in the next couple of days or shoots hoops or whatever else he needs to do to maintain his mental edge. i felt the same way about president george w. bush, and i never begrudged him his time at the ranch. all told he was there during 490 days during his presidency. the health of the country is largely a function of the physical and mental health of its commander in chief. and if blowing off a steam with a couple of bogeys or a beer in the clubhouse keeps him sharper when the red phone rings, we're all better off for it. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being was. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, michael, and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, a big victory for justice and civil rights. today a federal judge ruled that new york's stop a

're going to have a lot of women, hopefully, if all goes well, the great state senator wendy davis of texas will think about running for governor of texas. but if we want to see a woman in the white house, which we do, we also need to see and support women running in governorships. these are executive leader positions and in the united states, 24 states have not ever in their history elected a woman governor. they're not alone. we have to do this, this is another piece of the puzzle. as the senator says, once you see it, you get it. it's not an issue anymore. but we've got to keep pushing state-by-state. once we break that biggest and final glass ceiling towards the white house, it's going to open up so many doors across the country, governor's mayor -- governors' races, mayors' races, others. >> senator mccaskill, is she why you ran? >> i think that a simple way of putting it, i think both my mother and father gave me permission to be bossy and opinionated. my dad reassured me that even though no one wanted to date me in college, it would get better. i can't even believe that's true. >> bo
that is riddled with credits, loopholes, game playing. a friend of mine, kevin brady, is a member from texas that sits on a committee. the tax code of the united states is four times the size of a bible with none of the good news. pretty good summary. >> it is. in your opinion, if a presidential candidate made that a major point, would it carry any weight? >> yeah, i think it would. i think nobody ever thinks the tax system is fair. that is always an issue that resonates with america. let's be real -- taxes are one of the reasons we do put -- we declared our independence in the first place. we did not like the way was done, we thought we should have a direct say, which we did not. . think it is a major effort i think you are going to see it more, particularly if commerce cannot act in the next couple of years and this divided situation. i suspect whoever is running for president will make it a major issue. the last time we had really important tax stuff, ronald reagan was president. he ran on what was back then camp ross, which was lowering the rates, and then he carried another part of it o
